i didnt do the handle because of the abuse it normally takes from opening and closing all the time. sounds weird and the vinyl will hold up i'm sure but its just me i guess. its pretty tight quarters in there to get a nice even wrap too.

i'll try to get a shot from a distance to see how it looks. i wish i had a spoiler to do. that would be hot as hog tits in the summer son! i have an old console lid with no material anything on it. if i can figure out a way to fill that hole in that they put in it for whatever reason i might do it too. it has a bit of texture from the leftover glue and foam so it has to be smoothed out so that doesnt show under the vinyl. i will definitely use a heat gun this time so it molds easier. if it is cold or you use a hair dryer it doesnt get quite as flexible and small cuts may needed to get a clean stick. i was also thinking about doing the trim around the bumpers and sides since i have a base and it would sort of make it stand out.

they carry it at most any car parts store. advance had the best price. it comes in a 6'X6" roll for 12.88. trim brite was the name brand i think.

i did my old console lid last night. it turned out.................meh :unknown: i pieced the jeebus out of it because of the awkward shape and size of the vinyl. the seams are pretty obvious and imperfections show b/c the plastic wasnt great but the pattern lined well. but hell, it was all done with leftovers so no harm no foul.

Depends on the vinyl u used. If its 3m di-noc it will be fine on ur door handle. I wrapped the bowtie on the front of my trailblazer and its still on from all the driving and auto washers

If di-noc is too spendy for some oracal 975 will work also. Oracal also has a few color options and feels pretty close to the real thing
